Learning in Lockdown 7 – Laura Behan
  • Published: 11/06/2020

Laura Behan talks about working in the EYFS keyworker bubble as the rest of her school opens up to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. We hear about how the school has organised staff, children and the buildings, and how they are providing learning from home and support for the rest of the pupils.

We hope that this interview, and others, will generate ideas and allow listeners to reflect on what works best for their own situations.
